JAIPUR BOMBED: 60 feared dead in serial strikes on Pokhran anniversary

This article, published in the Calcutta Telegraph describes the eight bomb blasts that killed up to 60 people and injured 200 in Jaipur within a span of just 20 minutes. Immediate suspicion fell on the Bangladesh-based Harkat-ul Jehadi Islami.

The body of a bride, wearing a bright red sari and marriage bangles, lay on the road. A young man hung out of a rickshaw with his head turned back and face smeared with blood. In the puddle of blood outside the Hanuman temple, a 10-year-old boy lay dead.

The day of the bombings coincided with the 10th anniversary of the May 13 nuclear tests in the Rajasthan deserts, a few hundred miles away.
